Making Music and New Friends at the Rotary International Convention

Percussion Play and Percussion Play DK are currently in Hamburg, Germany making music and friends at the 2019 Rotary International Convention (1-5 June).

We’ve been delighted by the number of visitors we’ve had come to visit our booth and the amazing conversations we’ve had with people from all nationalities about the value of music and the positive impact it can have on both individuals and communities. We’ve seen visitors from all corners of the world including Uganda, Peru, Morocco, Canada, India, USA, Israel, Australia, Korea, Guyana, Japan plus many from the host nation of Germany and from all across Europe.

What has become very apparent is a mutual desire to help bring people together across generations, cultures and abilities and we’ve been very busy telling people about how music can transcend all of these barriers by providing its own language of rhythm and melody.

It’s been the most fun, we’ve already met some amazing individuals determined to make a difference and it’s only Day 3!
